The new Plan will include new planning policies (used in the determination of planning applications) and will allocate areas of land to address the development needs of the District for the period 2016-2036.

As part of the preparation of the emerging Local Plan, an appraisal of the social, environmental and economic impact of the plan must be carried out. This appraisal is known as a Sustainability Appraisal (SA). The SA will also meet the requirements for Strategic Environmental Assessment  (SEA) of the Local Plan.

In order to identify the range and level of detail of the information to be included in the SA, a Scoping Report has been produced.

For a period of 6 weeks between Monday 10 October 2016 and Monday 21 November 2016, the Council are consulting with Historic England, Natural England, the Environment Agency and other relevant bodies on the content of the Scoping Report.

Whilst this is primarily a technical consultation with the statutory bodies listed above, other organisations and individuals may also submit representations.

Further information and the Draft Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report is available on the Council’s website at:
